    For "entry" read "exit."
    
    The high pass was not observed, even though predicted magnitude was high the 
    sky was very bright.  Seems we are not yet at the stage where the ISS can 
    be seen that easily, even when combined with a shuttle!
    
    Upcoming passes (also at unsociable hours!) will be quite interesting as 
    they will be during EVAs to install Harmony mode and relocate the P6 truss.
